Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

National Coffee Day

The coffee of choice at Linderhof

And I'm surprised that we can find it in our little town on the prairie.
It's a good bold coffee and I like the hint of chicory!

Since today is National Coffee Day
A breakfast of coffee and cake seemed like a good idea

In the breakfast room.
Just coffee and cake

I may have lots of tea pots but I only have two china coffee pots
An Aynsley Pembroke one (the good china)
And this Johnson Brothers Indies one (the English transfer ware)

But then everyone knows my love affair with blue and white!
And Cass knows my love affair with Indies!

The coffee cake -- a raspberry cream cheese one that came from
Daughter Sarah.
It's a showstopper whenever she has a brunch
And I must admit that it is a very tasty coffee cake
(And who doesn't love raspberry?)

Of course, we didn't finish the whole thing for breakfast . . . 
But it's also tasty with tea in the afternoon
(But -- gosh -- you would have tea on National Coffee Day?)

Martha, would you please ask Sarah to share the recipe?
